Description
Oberleutnant Walter Schuck of JG-7 (206 victories) boldly attacks a B-17 formation southeast of Berlin on April 10, 1945, and is in turn shot down by fighter escort pilot Lieutenant Joseph A. Peterburs of 55 Fighter Squadron. In this aviation art print by Robert Bailey, Oberleutnant Schuck has ejected the canopy of his Messerschmitt Me-262 and fighting the fierce slipstream, is levering himself up prior to parachuting away from his stricken aircraft. Lt. Peterburs was also shot down this day and taken prisoner, but escaped and fought with the Russians until the end of the war.
